Atleast paint the wheels black. If you'll dig pics of Jap (drag/drift spec) Skylines, you'll find most of them with black wheels. The last R34 Skylines ever 'built', the Z-tune series (check second pic of ur post), came with black wheels as standard by Nismo. You can search pics of my 1:18 skyline for reference.

And get a spray can, it'll make life easier for you. You'll easily get it at your local hardware store.

Picked up a 1:18 W220 S Class today for 900 odd bucks. Good discounts at Hypercity Mumbai. Even the 1:18 Murcielagos are going for 899/- each. They have Maistos and Bburagos . The Alfa 8C is for around 1300/-, the same car was for 1850/- at Gift Centre.

They had in 1:18

Maserati 3200 GT
Corvette
Jag E Type convertible
BMW Z4
BMW M Coupe
Some Alfa
Murci Roadster
Alfa Romeo 8C

In Maisto they had

Porsche CGT
Audi RS4
Murci in Red
One Hummer H1 red wagon
BMW M5
Merc 500k
One yellow LP640
W220 S Class 2 pieces left after I bought one

Decent discounts on all these cars

Good deals on Singnature models of lower scale and Ferrari RC cars as well

I don't think this qualifies for the thread but then just for the heck of it, here's a wooden model from the bygone era.

The Scale Model Thread-dscn1141.jpg

Here are a couple more, yet to take the time to get a decent pic of these two, a Porsche GT3 (Autoart) and a Ferrari 599 (RC Scale)

Had a chat with Owner of Ramchander & sons (India's oldest toy store),he told me even if the request is placed with Maisto and Bburago distributors for these models,they take atleast 6 months to come on the shelfs...

They had only silver. Mine is silver too. I say pick up whatever you get. Soon these will be hard to come by. I picked this up without a thought because it will compliment the W221 S Class which I should get in the near future.

Since I have a sizeable Ferrari lineup, I am now looking to expand my Mercedes garage which I really dont have many at the moment.

S Class pictures tomorrow. Still have to take it out from the box.
